The Hartford Issues Statement

HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Hartford announced that Chairman, President and CEO Liam E. McGee underwent successful surgery to remove a small tumor in an easily accessible location on the brain. McGee had shown no symptoms previously and post-surgical tests have confirmed that the tumor was completely removed.

"The good news is that the tumor was identified early and the procedure went well," said McGee. "I am feeling great, as well as quite fortunate. I have had no side effects from the surgery or the tumor itself. I have been working from home and will be back in the office on Monday, fully performing my normal duties. In an abundance of caution, the doctors and I have agreed on a low-dose chemotherapy and radiation treatment and we expect minimal side effects."

Thomas A. Renyi, Presiding Director of The Hartford, said, "Liam has kept the Board apprised of the events before and after the surgery. We are delighted that the surgery was a success and are fully supportive of Liam."

McGee also sent a letter to employees today on this topic.
